Our Citi Field Beer Guy Is Kinda Famous Thanks To Trader Joes

Our Citi Field Beer Guy Is Kinda Famous Thanks To Trader Joes

The beer guy is one of the most important employees at the ballpark, and our dude Mike Marshall is up there in the MVP ranks at Citi Field. If you've ever cheered with The 7 Line Army at home, and you drink beer, you've seen Mike working the crowd.

If you happen to shop at Trader Joes in Merrick, you'll see Mike's mug as part of a display down the beer aisle. Our buddy Antonio runs the section at the supermarket and wanted "to pay tribute to the best beer guy in the business". 

A few takeaways here:

#1. That's pretty awesome. Mike is the man. Nice touch with the blue/orange floral shirt. 

#2. Apparently a few die hard Mets fans work at this Trader Joe's, and it's pretty common for them to tip their caps to the team. Shout out to Mary, one of their in house artists.

#3. I had no idea Trader Joe's made their own beer. At just $4.99 for a 6-pack of double IPA, I'd give it a whirl. This site says they actually have 18 house beers. Worth a shot. 

#4. I've never seen Mike sell anything but beer, but I guess he dabbles with hot chocolate on the chilly days. Must not have been a T7LA day. Charging $9.75 for hot chocolate is highway robbery though. Powder and water. Crazy. That's like a million percent markup. 

See ya in the Big Apple Reserve on April 4th, Mike. Have a couple Mikkeller's on ice for me.

Today will feel weird for many of us who have Opening Day traditions at the ballpark. It sucks. There’s no way to sugarcoat it. We’re also 4 months into this COVID world. I think we’re all accustomed to hanging at home by now.
